April 30, 1939 - June 12, 2022
Charles George Boye Sr., 83, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 1976, passed away Sunday, June 12, 2022. He was born April 30, 1939 in Bronx NY, where he grew up and started his family before moving to Johnstown, PA in 1969.
Charlie was an avid golfer and bowler. He loved crossword puzzles and reading. He had a passion for cooking and good food. He enjoyed watching sports, especially the NY Football Giants and the NY Mets. He had many talents from working in finance as a comptroller or accountant at various businesses, which led to owning his own business building shopping centers all over Southwest Florida. In later years he had the opportunity to work closely with his family at Direct Impressions. He had a firm code of ethics, and providing for his family was always a priority. He was proud of all of his sons’ accomplishments. He was a legend around town, known as Good Time Charlie, and loved by many in the community who knew him and cared for him. He loved his wife Kathleen with all his heart, never leaving her side when she got sick. His devotion and adoration of her was inspiring. He will be greatly missed but knowing that he and Kathy have been reunited brings those he left behind much joy, peace, and comfort.
He is survived by his loving sons, Charles George Boye, Jr. (Vanessa) of Henderson, NV, Robert John Boye (Carmen) of Cape Coral, FL, Christopher Scott Boye (Melissa) of Cape Coral, FL, Richard Joseph Boye (Jaime) of Cape Coral, FL, and Michael Edward Boye (Beth) of Cape Coral; brothers in law Richard Panio of Croton-on-Hudson, NY and Joseph Panio (Louise) of Milton, NY; sister in law Eleanor Boye; grandchildren Alison, Charles, Amy, Beth, Robert, Danielle, Kaitlyn, Tyler, Anna, Lindsay, Madalyn, Anita, Alexis, Nicklaus, Mason, Drew, Richard, Keana, Adam, Logan, James, Maile, and Kainoah; as well as 12 great-grandchildren and many dear nieces and nephews.
